If you've been following me for a while, you may have seen me share my top 3 inspirational photographers. My list included landscape photographer Steve Gosling, street photographer Thomas Leuthard and of course, outstanding portrait photographer Neil Buchan-Grant.
Not so long ago Neil started sharing stories on a new platform (well, new to me at least) called Steller, and I've been captivated ever since. It's a superb way of sharing photographs that tell a story. Effectively it's setup for telling visually-led stories with short paragraphs and quotes to guide and narrate the reader through the story. Neil Buchan-Grant has - as you would expect - has put together some great stories on Steller. Including this beautiful story called 'Frida's Story' and also a number of stories about his fashion and portrait work (which, I'm sure you'll agree is out of this world!).
So, this has inspired me to give it a go as well.
It's something I've been meaning to do for the longest of times, but the way that Steller works is that all stories are created from your mobile device. This of course requires you to have the content on your phone to put into your story. One thing I'm terrible at is making good use of being an all-Apple setup at home and Syncing my portfolio's from my iMac to my iPhone. But once I sat down to do this I had all the ingredients I needed to create my first story, which i titled 'Venetian Memories'.
One of the great things about Steller is that they allow you to grab the code and embed your stories on your website too:
I was very pleased with the response and the feedback and the comments I received from the wider community, as well as Steller and so I've been spurred on to put together some more stories:
Are you on Steller?
If you're on Steller come and follow me and I'll be sure to follow you back. So far the quality of a majority of the stories told on Steller are very good indeed - I would love to see yours too!
